‘Dangal’ Actor Suhani Bhatnagar Succumbs To Rare Disease

FARIDABAD (ANI) – Actor Suhani Bhatnagar, who made her acting debut in 2016 with Aamir Khan starrer sports drama biopic ‘Dangal’, passed away at the age of 19 on February 16. The family revealed that she had been suffering from Dermatomyositis, a rare inflammatory disease, which became the cause of her death.

She was undergoing treatment at the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences in Delhi. The symptoms started two months ago with swelling in the left hand.

On ‘Dangal’ child star Suhani Bhatnagar’s death, her parents said, “…Our recognition was because of Suhani… Aamir Khan was always supportive of her, but we had shared nothing about her disease with anyone including him (Aamir Khan) … During treatment she got an infection and her body started producing fluids that collapsed her lungs and she succumbed to it…”

Due to the infection, the entire body was filled with water, and she collapsed and was put on a ventilator but could not recover.

Talking about his daughter’s condition, her father Sumit Bhatnagar told the media, “Initially we thought it was a skin problem and consulted the dermatologist. We went to see many doctors and then we went to AIIMS. She was given steroids. We came to know about it late and finally, she couldn’t recover from the illness.”

Aamir Khan Productions mourned the demise of the actor and penned a heartfelt note. They wrote, “We are deeply saddened to hear about our Suhani passing away. Our heartfelt condolences to her mother Poojaji, and the entire family. Such a talented young girl, such a team player. Dangal would have been incomplete without Suhani. Suhani, you will always remain a star in our hearts. May you rest in peace.”

Suhani played the younger version of Babita, while Sanya Malhotra essayed the older Babita Phogat.
